Photoinitiators for Polymer Synthesis : Scope, Reactivity, and Efficiency, Hardback Book

Photoinitiators for Polymer Synthesis : Scope, Reactivity, and Efficiency Hardback


Photoinitiating systems for polymerization reactions are largely encountered in a variety of traditional and high-tech sectors, such as radiation curing, (laser) imaging, (micro)electronics, optics, and medicine. This book extensively covers radical and nonradical photoinitiating systems and is divided into four parts: Basic principles in photopolymerization reactions Radical photoinitiating systems Nonradical photoinitiating systems Reactivity of the photoinitiating system The four parts present the basic concepts of photopolymerization reactions, review all of the available photoinitiating systems and deliver a thorough description of the encountered mechanisms.

A large amount of experimental and theoretical data has been collected herein.

This book allows the reader to gain a clear understanding by providing a general discussion of the photochemistry and chemistry involved. The most recent and exciting developments, as well as the promising prospects for new applications, are outlined.
